He has been loved in front of the camera. And now, Imran Khan is moving behind the lens to try his hands at something new. In his last hit, Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, Imran had placed himself in the audience and shot co-star Katrina Kaif performing Dhunki on stage. A major portion of that footage was retained in the film.
For his upcoming, Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu (EKAET), Imran has shot video blogs where he is talking about the film, introducing characters and showcasing fun bits from the sets for net-surfers.
The videos have already been uploaded on YouTube. In one of the posts, the actor is seen walking around the sets of EKAET, introducing people working in front and behind the camera.
In the third blog post, Imran has captured co-star Kareena Kapoor’s expressions while she is watching the theatrical trailer of their film.
Says Imran, “I had bought a new camera and I was shooting randomly. In the process, I was also talking to people around me. So, it’s turned into a nice video blog. I’m quite excited about it.”
Interestingly, this is not Imran’s first stint behind the camera. The actor, who has delivered back-to-back hits with Delhi Belly and Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, worked for some time as a camera operator in the US after graduating from college.
Besides Imran, producer Karan Johar is also thrilled with the result. “Karan loved the idea. Especially since Imran has shot it personally and he has never really done something like this in the past for his films,” says a member of the production unit.
The theatrical trailer of EKAET releases with The Dirty Picture this Friday. The film, which has been directed by Shakun Batra, is a Valentine’s Day release and will see the youngest Khan star opposite Kareena for the first time.
